SEEDING & LANE ASSIGNMENTS:                Each event will be seeded by the pre-entered seedtime of each swimmer, with the slower heats first (except the 1650, which will be swum fastest to slowest).  The meet will be deck seeded according to times submitted, regardless of age and gender.  No time (NT) will be seeded in the slower heats.  Swimmers are responsible to report to the blocks on time for their appropriate heat and lane for each event.  Heat and lane assignments for all events will be posted by 11:00 am on the day of competition.

STARTING PROCEDURE:                    103.8.5—Start Commands
A At the commencement of each heat, the referee shall signal to the swimmers by a
short series of whistles to remove all clothing except for swimwear, followed by a
long whistle indicating that they should take their positions with at least one foot
at the front of the starting platform, the edge of the pool or on the wall and remain
there. In backstroke and medley relay events, at the referee’s first long whistle the
swimmers shall immediately enter the water and at the second long whistle shall
return without undue delay to the starting position (article 101.1.2).
B When the swimmers and officials are ready, the referee shall signal with an outstretched
arm to the starter that the swimmers are under the starter’s control.
C On the starter’s command “Take your mark,” the swimmers shall immediately assume
their starting position with at least one foot at the front of the starting platform.
Swimmers starting in the water must have at least one hand in contact with the wall
or starting platform. When all swimmers are stationary, the starter shall give the
starting signal.
D For backstroke event starts, the starter may give the command “Place your feet”
after the referee’s whistle.

RELAYS:                             All relays are deck entered.  Mixed relays may be swum, and shall consist of two men and two women, who may swim in any order.  Age groups for relays will be determined by the youngest member of the team and are: 19+, 25+, 35+, 45+, etc.

                                                Official relay cards are to be picked up from the Clerk of Course by a team representative who is responsible for the relay.  The relay representative should print legibly all information required.  Each card should include the swimmer’s name as on the USMS registration card in order of relay swum; first name, last name, age and gender.  Cards shall be returned to the computer table by 10:30am on 2/6/2022

  • An award will be given to the first place scoring team overall for the meet.
  • Individual and relay awards will be given for first through third place by gender and age group for 19+, 25+…. through 100+.
